Clip-Lok SimPak® continues a 25 year long cooperation with the automotive industry – this time with a 2P box custom designed for shipping truck side windows directly to the assembly line.
The Clip-Lok 2P solution offers a number of advantages over traditional packaging. The name 2P – or two-part – means that the box has only two loose parts, the lid and the front. The rest of the sides are hinged to the base to allow fast flat-packing and build-up of the reusable box. Even the spring steel clips are hinged in place. The plywood and polyurethane dunnage is built into the box so there is no loose dunnage, no need for any extra packaging and no waste at all.
The box is designed to hold both left and right side windows eliminating the need for two separate box models. Once on the assembly line, the high-precision dunnage and narrow tolerances mean that the glass windows can be unloaded by robots that require the windows to be in an exact position.
“We understand the unique requirements for lean manufacturing, just-in-time delivery and in-sequence delivery,” says Gustaf Follin, Sales Director at Clip-Lok SimPak. “This, together with our determination to work together with the manufacturer to design the ideal packaging solution, has contributed to our growing business with automotive companies over the past 25 years.”
